None of that means it is a superior system for composition....

I was thinking that myself. The reality is, none of what he mentioned is useful compositional tools.
Do note that the point I am trying to put forward is NOT to show that EVF is superior, NOR am I trying to convince anyone to embrace EVF!!
A camera is a very personal tool, and each of us has our own preference. It's like telling someone to use Av mode instead of Tav mode.... Or telling someone that their preference of vinyl over CD is wrong..... There is no right or wrong in which preference one has!

It is perfectly fine and understandable that some of you prefer optical viewfinder. But at the same time, to many of the newer P&S generations, they are also perfectly comfortable using EVF for composition.
My point was that EVF has many advantages too, and obviously, it also has its disadvantages. Some of you cannot tolerate its disadvantages, while others are not bothered by them at all.

Some have expressed dismayed as to why anyone with the right mind would choose something "inferior" from their point of view. But the reality is that what you consider inferior may not be the priority of another user. EVF can be a very viable alternative to OVF, and it is expected to improve rapidly in the coming years.
